|Subject: Re: Renting a Cell phone in Europe|
To continue on this topic, I see that TIM, the main mobile service
provider in Italy, has a World in Touch program targeted at visitors
to rent cell phones. See http://www.tim.it , click on English if
needed, then World in Touch. It has a link to
http://www.ringtime.com , a rather sparse site but with contact
information by e-mail or a U.S. toll-free number. They can arrange
for a phone to be picked up at the airport or delivered to a hotel.
I don't know how their prices compare to renting a phone from a local
shop, but there would be less uncertainty in using this program.

Jonathan is correct that the L is the easiest way to get downtown, but you will then have a five or six block walk to the Sheraton even if you get off the L at Wabash and Randolph. If you don't have much luggage, not a problem.
There are Airport buses that operate between the downtown hotels and the airports. I suspect you need to make a reservation. Try calling the hotel to ask them about it. At least that way you go door to door.
